Coming to you at 11:50 AM instead of my usual 6:30 AM, its me! Your Poll Mistress!
Sorry about this, but there was nothing I could do about it, the phone line was dead yesterday night and so I had to wait for the phone repairman to come this morning to fix it! It was totally out of my hands, I swear!
How do you guys get your internet? Which will bring me to a bonus Poll this week...
Did you know that some original plastics had some organic matter in them, too? They were called "celluloids" and smelled of camphor when heated. Due to them having some organic matter in them (plant fiber to give shape), they were highly flamable. This caused some fires in movie theaters at that time, because of how fast the reels would spin, so they turned to plastics that had very little to no organic matter in them, and left the celluloids for making sculptures and buttons, which are now very collectible.

Today, Bethesda posted a blog that both thanks players for their response to Fallout 4 and attempts to explain the volume of bugs people have been experiencing. From the post:
It's true that the freedom our games offer you can lead to unintentional consequences that are sometimes bad, when the game combines too many unexpected elements at once. Given the scale and complexity of the systems at work, especially when allowing you to build your own settlements, we're happy that Fallout 4 is our most robust and solid release ever, and we'd like to thank our amazing QA staff who worked as hard as anyone to break the game so we could fix it during development. But a hundred testers will never replicate the many millions playing the game now, and we're hard at work addressing the top issues.
They also announced their process for improving the play experience. First, they will release a beta patch on steam, followed by a full release on PC, and finally a release on PS4 and Xbox One. This is the …

Everyone has heard of beer belly, but did you know that beer on its own doesn't make you fat, contrary to popular belief? For what it is, beer is relatively low in calories and drinking it makes you urinate more so the calories don't build up in your body. Because your body requires sugar to break down the alcohol, your body gets hungrier to get back what's lost. So, it's actually all the eating you do after drinking that gets you beer belly!
I guess this edition was also a surprise
That's all this week.Read more >
"...Dear Leea will keep you in Polls, sweet Nukapedians. Forever, and always..."
Yeah, I know, weird, but I couldn't help but modify a quote from one of my top ten favorite characters in Skyrim, Cicero!
I missed Skyrim so much, I didn't even finish my Hardcore playthrough!
Did you know that you can raise your body temperature by two degrees an hour by shivering? Heh. I tried this once on a cold morning years ago, and as I was shivering and telling dad this, he just looked at me and said "Wouldn't it just be easier to put on a coat?" Heh heh heh.
So, do you believe any sort of "confession" from a celebrity?
- Third was sorta. When its about certain stuff, like "I totally didn't have plastic surgery!", it'd be more like a spoonful of salt.
- Second was "Never!" 'Cause nothin' gets 'em in the headlines faster than letting a bombshell drop.
- And first was not paying and attention to that sort of stuff. Me too. This was an issolated incident.
- And, for an honorable mention, was the one person who voted …

I'll stick these in the news blog when foxy and I get around to doing it but I and NukaTurtle had our Fallout 4 Lootcrate arrive this afternoon...
Eagle eyed spotters will notice on the right hand side, it says that this bobble head is good for 1 Attribute boost, or 10 skill points.... But Fallout 4 doesn't have skill points...
...And no, it can't be a leftover box from Fallout 3 or New Vegas as the vault number on the other side of the box is clearly 111.
Was the absence of skills a late decision, or was it even guarded from the marketing team? Or am I overreading a simple error? Agent c (talk) 17:52, November 6, 2015 (UTC)Read more >
I was watching a talk show a while ago (The Talk, by the way), which I don't normally do, since such "talk shows" give me a headache. Anyway, on there was about a segment of Tori Spelling being on some sort of "truth or dare" game show, where she was asked a question about something and she admited that she had slept with her costars of 90210. Everyone on the talk show was all agog, and I was like "Seriously? You guys are surprised?" I would be surprised if someone said they didn't do
That's all for now. If you have any ideas, leave them on my talk page!Read more >

The last remnants of hurricane Patricia fell on us Sunday and Monday, and I tell you, Monday was a bitch. Although we got the much needed rain (we were under a "moderate drought warning"), which was over five inches, the power went out quite a few times on Sunday night and then again on Monday. And then you sit there and think "Now what?" You can't read, you can't watch anything, and for whatever reason that I have yet to understand, you can't really fall back asleep when you realize that there's not any power. Monday daytime was okay, but in the evening the power went out and stayed out for over 6 hours. No joke! So in the end I sat there at the kitchen table with two kerosene lamps and read to mom and dad from a book with true ghost stories from 5 to 8 at night. Then I had trouble falling asleep, and when I was finally sleeping, dad comes in at 10 or so and tells me that the power's back on and to turn off the battery-powered candle I had been using as a night light, then at 1 in the…Read more >
I had opened a new set of sheets a couple weeks ago, because I wanted more than three sets to choose from. The label advertised "Silky Soft," and it did feel soft, so I put it on my bed. Oh, but lo and behold, when I got in at bedtime, the sheets weren't actually "Silky Soft" but rather Cheap Polyester Slippery. During the week, I had to wake up at least four times in the night because the sheets were so slippery the they "rejected" my quilts and so I had to wake up in the night becasue I was cold and go get the mess off the floor. Only to repeat this whole charade another three times each night. When it came around to changing the sheets again, I was actually glad to change them, because then I could put on other sheets that didn't torture me. I swear that I'm going to save that sheet set for summer, when I'll be hot and so won't give a damn where the sheets went.
I'll quote this directly from a book of mine:[From a Reader's Digest book on unexplained phenomena]
If doesn't sound weird and …

After finishing the end-game quests yesterday for the Legion, I was struck by a few things:
- Caesar's supposed to be near death and out cold in a coma, but you operate on him with the Doctor's Bag and the Surgical Tools, and he more or less jumps out of bed and gives you your next assignment. I just thought that was a little too weird.
- How you're supposed to kill the president, but you can't take out any of his security detail, even in stealth, or everybody will now notice that someone's dead and the quest fails, even though you can kill oodles of NCR troops in stealth everywhere else and nobody notices; they just walk over their dead comrades as if they weren't there. It took me three tries to finally get that damn quest right. For the record, pretecting him was easier than killing him.
- In the final battle on the dam, while it was nice that you get a bunch of Legionaries to back you up, there are major downsides to this: they rush with melee or unarmed weapons and get slaughtered, so in th…
